i don't think any of you guys have actually researched the ford gt

they took the motor out of the daytona prototype, so they knew it could withstand an intense beating. Strapped it to a Getrag transmission and then put it in a carbon fiber monocoque.

for $500k you get a street-legal race car, just like the LFA was. now is this as good as the LFA was? eh, i'll wait for some people who have driven both to comment on that.

but seriously, this car has been in the works for like half a decade. and it's easy to design an attractive supercar when you have the lines of the 2005 GT to work off of

Tell me again how GM and Chrysler can do better than this?

By making more than 500 units.
By producing it domestically instead of in Canada.
By producing an engine that makes more than 630hp.
By releasing performance statistics.
By not listening to the marketing department, like they did when they selected a V6 for their halo car (instead of developing a twinturbo Voodoo V8).

I want to root for Ford, and I hate GM and FCA, but the GT is getting more and more disappointing, the more you learn about it. It's certainly not worthy of all the hype, kinda like the Focus RS - although both are textbook examples of how to hype.

ZeroReborn

No dude I love the new GT, it's just a shame the panel gap thing is still so noticable. Hopefully it's just a pre-production flaw.

700+hp
[citation needed]
Ford themselves claim 600+hp, most industry sources claim 630. If it's 700+, they'd have advertised it as 700+, Ford's marketing department isn't stupid.
sub-2500lbs
[citation needed]
Unless it's a rebodied ND Miata, there isn't a single supercar in that weight range - and not a single suggestion that Ford has significantly deviated from the standard formula, which could actually make it weight 500lbs less than a 675LT.
Faster than anything this side of a 918
[citation needed]
No laptimes have been released, no acceleration testing, no SAE power ratings, nothing. There's no way to prove your claim.

inb4 spoonfeed me mommy!
That excuse has been used a hundred times before - claims are worthless unless you back them up with data.

They had the chance to use the the FR9 roush yates engine, to make the meanest sounding, baddest motherfucker on the road with more than 800 hp, but they decided to make the fucking thing an ecoboost billboard instead.

Bravo ford. Go fuck yourselves along with that "progressive thinking" of yours.

@Soft_member

I don't think you have either, because you're just talking unsourced bullshit.

they took the motor out of the daytona prototype
Which is a Ford V6, sent to Roush and upgraded there. So their SOP for the GT will be to take finished V6 engines off the assembly line, send the to Roush, then back, and plop then in the GT? Apart from the fact that you don't have a source for this, it makes more sense to just build it in house.

so they knew it could withstand an intense beating.
Apart from the fact that they might not even use a race engine, race engines aren't reliable in street use.

Strapped it to a Getrag transmission
I hope not, because the only DCT transmissions Getrag makes for Ford are those transverse 6 speeds.

for $500k you get a street-legal race car, just like the LFA was
Street legal racecar is not always a good thing. Also, the LFA wasn't a racecar for street use, it was a GT pushed into racecar service. The kerb weight, engine and transmission used are all proof of that. The LFA might have pulled your heartstrings, but it was not a racecar, or objectively good. Subjectively good? Hell yes, a cold startup is enough to prove that.

I don't think an FR9 would be warranty-able, or even smog legal.

If they wanted Ecoboost, they should've put direct injection and a set of snails on the Voodoo. Too bad Ford isn't smart enough to figure out direct injection in the Modular V8 - unlike Chevy, which is now pushing DI across the range.

Also, meanwhile, Mopar is still making iron block, pushrod port injected bastard ''Hemi's''. And they've still got the most powerful engines of the Big Three.

First source I've got says between 600 and 630hp, 2890lbs, and there's no laptimes yet. A very, very far cry from 700hp and 2500lbs.

So, unless you've got actual sources saying otherwie (you can go ahead and use the Google links I provided, they'll be helpful), you have been declared BTFO.
